Configure Fax, Monitoring, Backup in SBS 2003 [book excerpt]

Happy 4th of July! Iam harry brelsford, the author of Windows Small Business Server 2003 Best Practices and a Microsoft Small Business Specialist (SBSC). I am posting up a few pages from this*purple book* each day until SBS 2008 ships!
Today we wrap up some of the SBS Management Console\To DoList items. Whew!
Harry Brelsford, ceo at smb nationm
Configure Fax
This selection will launch the wizard for Fax Configuration Wizard. Over the course of several steps you will complete in Chapter 9, you will configure the Shared Fax Service to benefit SPRINGERS.
Configure Monitoring
The Monitoring Configuration Wizard is launched from this link on the To Do List. This will implement the awesome monitoring capability in SBS 2003 and will be discussed in detail in Chapter 12.
Configure Backup
The Backup Configuration Wizard is launched from this link and commences the configuration of the massively improved backup process. More on this in the SBS administration chapter later in the book.
BEST PRACTICE: Because the last two To Do List items have only been discussed and not completed here, be sure you do not select the Done checkbox for these items. That wouldn’t make sense as you’ve not completed the tasks. Later, once the relevant work is completed, you’ll mark these tasks as done.
BEST PRACTICE: You can print out the To Do List which makes for a nice checklist to work with as you run around as an SBSer. Simply click the Print button in the lower right.
